Each team will play 72 games in the 2020-21 season, facing each opponent in its conference three times (42 total games per team) and each opponent in the other conference twice (30 total games per team). In the First Half, each team will play 37 or 38 games, including a minimum of 17 home games and a maximum of 20. Nearly 52% of all regular-season games (558 of 1,080) have been scheduled for the First Half - THIS DAY IN THE NBA

 

Saturday December 5, 2020

New York, New York USA

The NBA released its game schedule and broadcast schedules for TNT, ESPN, ABC, NBA TV and ESPN Radio for the First Half of the 2020-21 regular season (Dec. 22, 2020 – March 4, 2021), detailing the only place you can find the most drama, the biggest stars and thrilling game action. The schedule for the Second Half of the season (March 11 – May 16, 2021) will be released during the latter part of the First Half portion of the schedule.

The NBA previously announced its national television schedule for the first three game days of the 2020-21 season. NBA Tip-Off 2020 will begin on Tuesday, Dec. 22 with TNT’s opening-night doubleheader as the Brooklyn Nets host the Golden State Warriors at 7 p.m. ET and the defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers take on the LA Clippers at 10 p.m. ET. On Wednesday, Dec. 23, the Milwaukee Bucks will visit the Boston Celtics at 7:30 p.m. ET on TNT and the Phoenix Suns will host the Dallas Mavericks at 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The 73rd edition of the NBA on Christmas Day will feature five games across ESPN and ABC on Friday, Dec. 25: New Orleans Pelicans at Miami Heat (12 p.m. ET, ESPN), Warriors at Bucks (2:30 p.m. ET, ABC), Nets at Celtics (5 p.m. ET, ABC), Mavericks at Lakers (8 p.m. ET, ABC/ESPN) and Clippers at Denver Nuggets (10:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Each team will play 72 games in the 2020-21 season, facing each opponent in its conference three times (42 total games per team) and each opponent in the other conference twice (30 total games per team). In the First Half, each team will play 37 or 38 games, including a minimum of 17 home games and a maximum of 20. Nearly 52% of all regular-season games (558 of 1,080) have been scheduled for the First Half.

The schedule incorporates steps to reduce travel, including the use of a “series” model. In some instances where a team is scheduled to play twice in one market, those games have been scheduled to be played consecutively. Each team will play an average of four “series” in the First Half – two at home and two on the road. Additional steps include more instances of teams playing consecutive road games against teams that are geographically close, and roughly 50% fewer instances of teams making single-game road trips.

As part of a continuous effort to present national television games to the largest possible audience, the NBA worked closely with its teams and domestic broadcast partners to schedule earlier start times for doubleheaders. During the First Half of the season, each doubleheader across TNT and ESPN will tip off at 7 p.m./9:30 p.m. ET or 7:30 p.m./10 p.m. ET.

TNT will televise seven Tuesday doubleheaders and nine Thursday doubleheaders during the First Half, with all games available to stream via tntdrama.com/watchtnt, the Watch TNT app and participating TV providers’ websites and apps. ESPN will televise nine Wednesday doubleheaders and eight Friday doubleheaders during the First Half, with all games available to stream on the ESPN App.

The schedule for the Second Half of the season (March 11 – May 16, 2021) will include the remainder of each team’s 72 games not scheduled in the First Half as well as any games postponed during the First Half that can reasonably be added to the Second Half schedule. The Second Half will be followed by the Playoff Play-In Tournament (May 18-21) and the 2021 NBA Playoffs (May 22 – July 22).

The NBA today launched its season campaign hashtag, #OnlyHere, on social media, highlighting the unique action and excitement unlike any other you will experience this season.
